Their skin can be the colour of fluffy white clouds, heavy rain-carrying
grey storm clouds, or any colour of the sky (shades of blues
of the day, purples of twilight, reds and oranges of dusk and
dawn, or midnight blue or black of night).
They have giant batlike wings that extend one and a half times
their frame (a six foot demon would have nine foot wings).
They are extremely muscular due to the physical exertion of
flying, have cloven feet for fast and firm footed running (for
take-off) and long pointed twisting horns of the kind that might've
started the unicorn mythology (except they have two sprouting
from their temples.
Eyes and hair are the colour of their demonic skin. Their hair is
their vanity and they tend to keep it long in both forms. They look
as they did before the 'kiss' took place (See: Creation).
An Air Demon is created by another Air Demon, literally with a kiss.
They blow air into the recipient and fill their bodies with what
makes them air demons. They must do this several times before it
takes. The understanding of air demons is that if the 'kiss' is
performed once a night for a week, the human will always transform
into an air demon. Less than that and it might not take. The ritual
can be performed on sleeping recipients. It takes roughly a month
for the transformation to be complete.
an Air Demon and a human procreate without siring and a child is
born of the union, that would create a Winged Demon.
In Human Form:
- Not afraid
of heights and are rather daring when in high places
- They are
able to turn into their demon (air) form at will
- They are
very good at resisting cold and don't mind playing in the rain
or in snow with summer clothing on
- They can
manipulate air currents so if they are physically tired but mentally
active, they can still fly for a long time
resistant to cold temperatures (for it gets cold high in the sky)
- If an Air
Demon loses their wings, they know that another pair will grow
back, but it would take a year
In Human Form:
When shape shifting to their original human form, they only retain
their physical strength. Though this strength is formidable by human
standards, their ability to control air is lost, making them uncomfortable
and their human skin constrictive.
In Demon Form:
Heat weakens them, will exhaust them quicker, though they still
make use of warm air currents
They have a very limited attention span and are
rather shallow and fickle beings. Emotionally unstable to boot,
air demons tend to have a flair for the dramatic but are rather
happy and bouyant types, most of the time. When angry, a quick fly
around in the air lifts their spirits and they tend to pursue things
that make them happy, shying away from whatever or whoever tends
to make them sad or angry. The love to avoid confrontation and simply
blow away on the wind.
They don't recognise family units so much as their Creator (the
one who performs the 'kiss'), or Sire. Their heirachy is much like
the vampire heirachy, sire and fledgling, rather than brethren of
their mortal bloodline.
